Excellent food. Extensive international menu. Great service.

This is an excellent restaurant for westerners with an extensive menu and excellent food. The owner is an English Ex-pat and very welcoming. Prices are very good for what you get.

We visited The lantern room most nights during our 3 week stay in Luxor. The food was outstanding, with the specials board changing daily. All meals are made to order and always fresh. So please don't expect fast food service. The owner and staff are always very friendly and attentive, and the reastaurant is spotlessly clean. Will deffinately be back... More

On my trip to Egypt this past March, I had the pleasure of eating in The Lantern Room. The meal was excellent and the staff were attentive. I had a quick chat with the owner Debbie as well and she was great. I can't recommend this place enough.

The restaurant overall is good, food quality, service delivery. Although the restaurant owned by an Egyptian guy & his English wife, unless you have a strong customer personality as long as you are not an European his wife treats you from top to down grade people when you start to treat her equal to equal then she starts to respect...

We visited Luxor in late May for 3 weeks and ate at the Lantern most evenings. Immaculately clean with a good menu of simple home cooked food the Lantern is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Luxor. Debbie the owner is welcoming and fun and the restaurant is great value for money. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We were just glad we took the advice of some guys we met in our hotel. The restaurant was spotless, the service was attentive, the food was excellent English/Egyptian food. We also had a superb Yorkshire pudding on a Sunday :) and the last day I had an apricot taijin that was simply superb. We loved it and the owners... More
